FULL DESCRIPTION

Meet your English speaking Driver and naturalistic Guide and departing from Messina you will traverse spectacular landscapes as you make your way to Mount Etna, through the lava fields and the craters of ancient and recent eruptions. Mount Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe (10,902ft) and undoubtedly the dominating feature of Eastern Sicily. Your guide will show you the ancient eruptions and the recent ones while giving you some great insights and tell you about this volcano that has always dominated local life, bringing dust and sometimes destruction but also enriching the soil and creating a unique terroir. Your excursion might include some interesting easy trekking. Wines coming out of Mount Etna are considered today among the finest and most unique in Italy. Your guide will also take you to a boutique family-run winery where the producers will host you for a light lunch featuring local products paired with their award-winning wines. In the afternoon you can enjoy some free time in Taormina, the Sicilian star of the European Grand Tour. Perched on a rocky promontory above the sea, its Greek theater is world famous for the spectacular setting and scenery framing Etna. The town centre is full of shops, cafes and restaurants. We suggest to wander along its narrow medieval streets. After that you will meet your driver to head back to the harbor.
